Gigantic Tomato Plant

My husband planted this one tomato plant he received from my sister as a birthday present and it grew to over 9 feet tall and had a span of at least 16 feet. The plant yielded an abundance of tomatoes and there are many on the plant to still ripen. No special care was given to the plant it just seemed to thrive when planted in this spot.

What was the variety of the tomato plant and what side of the house was it planted?

That is the biggest one I have ever seen! He must have a green thumb. We planted 3 tomato plants this year, but not the first one produced. Next year, we will plant in a different spot. Again, that is a huge plant.

WOW!!!

Like the last poster, I'm curious about the variety.

Hope you keep the pips, and then grow your own.

I planted one beside the house a few years ago in clay soil. It made 2 pound tomatoes. I put miracle grow around it & plenty of water, it got over 20 ft tall. I used pvc pipe to stake it, good luck.

It also helps that the brick absorbs the heat during the day and releases it during the night & helps keep the plants warmer.

Also, are you going to offer some of the seeds in seed swap this season? I'd love to have a few!
